What is the canton fair

Join Us at the Largest Exhibition of Factories and Suppliers In The World

The Canton Fair is huge! It’s the size of three airports. Almost a half mile of exhibitors. The size of 300 football fields. A fourth complex debuted in April - making it even larger.

There are more products on display at the Canton Fair than you can possibly imagine. Products you've never seen. Products that your competitors do not even know about.

At the Canton Fair you can examine potential products in person. You can question suppliers. You'll see a variety of options, and you can compare the quality of your sample against other samples, and against other materials and different factories, in real time. All without the wait or cost of FedEx.

Even better, you can distinguish between trading companies and factories much easier when you engage them directly. 

Of course, talking with your supplier face-to-face builds trust and rapport, which helps you save money and makes the entire sourcing process simpler and smoother ...and less expensive!

We Take Care Of You

Our program includes a 5-Star Hotel, transportation to the Canton Fair, transportation from the airport, and transportation to all events.  You have access to experts whenever you need it, including at the Fair, at no additional charge. 

The Canton Fair is the largest exposition space in the world. We don't want you feeling lost or overwhelmed. We don't want you confused because you do not speak Chinese. We take care of you from the moment you are met at the airport.

We have the most incredible, respected, and supportive coaches anywhere. 

We give you Three Trip Choices to fit your budget and we give you the same support, guidance, and attention no matter which option you choose.

If you are serious about increasing your margins, lowering your product costs, finding a factory, understanding your supply chain, building relationships, scaling your brand, and putting your business growth on steroids, there is nothing comparable to attending the Canton Fair.

You will have hands-on experiences and training that will advance you far ahead of your competitors.  You will have VIP access to areas and factories that most Chinese never have.

Are You Still On The Fence? 


Do you want to make higher margins?

Suppliers are eager to make deals. This was confirmed at the April Canton Fair. I was there myself. You simply need to know the right way to negotiate with them.

In our program, you will learn how to negotiate with Chinese suppliers. First, you will learn negotiation in safe classroom training before the Fair. Then you will visit a factory to understand what happens behind the scenes. At the fair you will shadow me and watch me negotiate with suppliers live, in-person.  

You'll also learn how to negotiate MOQ's and payment terms.

After you finish the classroom training on negotiation, the factory visit, and shadowing me, you will be able to negotiate on your own. However,  I will be available at any time to join you, to be at your side, and to aid you, if you need my help.

Want one more reason to join us? In this trip we talk about PROFITS, not just sales.  Think about that.

Your entire trip should be a tax deduction. That means, if you do this correctly with your accountant, the trip will be virtually free. We provide a journal to support you. 

Our exclusive Canton Fair Workbook provides fill-in-the-blank guidance for supplier discussions and factory visits. Use this when you talk with suppliers so that you won’t have to worry about skipping important questions or forgetting information after the Fair.
